A Haut-Médoc wine of seductive freshness and complexity

The estate

An iconic Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou reigns over a prestigious terroir. In the past 300 years, six families have worked ceaselessly to elevate this estate to the international reputation it enjoys today. A property of the Borie family since 1941, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou takes its name from its terroir of “beautiful pebbles” made up of Gunzian gravel. Under the leadership of Bruno Borie, Château Ducru-Beaucaillou has become one of the greatest red wines of Saint-Julien.

The vineyard

The Château Ducru-Beaucaillou vineyard is situated along the river and planted in soils of gravel dating from the Günz Ice Age. Located near the Gironde estuary, the river acts as a thermoregulator. The estates vines give rise to fine Haut-Médoc wines and enjoy an exceptional microclimate.

Vinification and ageing

Following the harvest and a tailor-made vinification process, the wine is aged for 12 months in Bordeaux barrels, 20% in new wood and 80% in second-fill barrels. Ullage is carried out regularly during the first six months of ageing, as well as à l'esquive rackings every two to three months, with four in total.

The blend

Merlot (71%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (15%)

Petit Verdot (14%).

The tasting

Colour

Deep, the colour is adorned with subtle purple hues.

Nose

Lively and expressive, the nose blends fruity fragrances (red fruits, redcurrants, cherries) with floral notes (fresh flowers), vanilla and spices.

Palate

Ample and fresh, the palate is seduced by this wine’s fruity expression, its caressing tannins and its persistence.
